ayo!! ive arrived to this site to write my stories as the site i previously used has been shut down, so ive been trying to figure out how to work all of this stuff
and me being me, i always shoot for the stars so im starting right away into the advanced features, i think i mostly understand it all
but, ive made a test story to try out variables, items, restrictions and such, but im having some troubles with variables restriction, and with item restrictions but i need to experiment with that more before i try getting personal help
but, in my test story, i have advanced variables on, which of course also includes advanced variable restrictions, and to test this out i had one link that needs 10 var1 to pass on, and on the actual settings for it, im confused
im pretty sure its suppoed to be like; https://ibb.co/huUo0G
?though the problem being; even while having 0 var1 it still lets me pass by the link without restrictions
i have poor coordination with understanding most simple instructions most others can understand easily so i apologize for any slowness or confusion on my part
True, but in all honesty I was kind of intimidated by it, and im conflicted because yes; I'm dealing with advanced settings, but I'm also a newbie.
And apologies for the writing, trust me, my actual writing isn't like this, I just have a habit of becoming a 'lazy typer' when writing non-story things. Old habits die hard, y'know?
And I came from Inklewriter, it's currently shutting down. Said site was very simple and easy for me to use, I never quite ventured into the more complicated features of it, but now that it's shutting down I've decided to move here, and also to try and give a shot to other features.
And! I realized my mistake with the In List and actually just changed it to equal, but it still didn't work.
Yeah, didn't know Inklewriter was shutting down either.
I found the shutdown notice.
It was! But basically the creators got tired of constantly fixing the bugs that came up when things were updated? I'm rather sad for it to be shut down though as I had used that site for years, it was quite literally a part of my childhood.
And don't worry, such questions are sometimes necessary. But yes, the first page the player starts at, VAR1 is set to 0(I made sure that in the variable options the starting number is 0) and then by time they get to the second page they're still at 0, the link to proceed has the non-working variable restriction.
If you wish I can share to you said test story so you can check it out yourself. (I'm not completely sure how I would go about that, so you'll need to help me with that too, sorry.)
Well, the variable I think is set to 10, and I do want it to show up!
And I'll get right to that, and I don't mind, I can be patient.
I think I added you as an co-author? Hopefully, at least.
And warning: this is just simply a test story, I really only planned for it to be seen by my eyes only so it's quite a mess and obviously not taken seriously at all, it's just a means for me to test stuff out.
I thought I did switch it to advanced? Gosh I feel stupid.
I'm sorry and I'm going to sound even more stupid but I don't understand? And I don't understand nor know how to use scripting whatsoever.
I think I see what you did? But the whole reason of having next and a seperate link to add 10 to var1 is so i can test out the feature of not being able to pass a link, and then having to go back to the previous page to pick the second link and gain 10 to var1 and then being able to pass.
I'm sorry if I'm just confusing things or such, I'm a bit of a mess.
I do plan on trying to get a handle on at the very least basic scripting! Though currently I'm just messing with advanced variables, items and restrictions and such. But I definitely will check out! But I'm happy to have this figured out! Even if it seemed that the problem was solved once 'OR' was ticked off? How anti-climatic.
If that was the only condition, then it probably did. IIRC there need to be fewer restrictions with OR checked than there are restrictions total or the link is unrestricted.
I think I understand now! (Hopefully, at least)
Did you come from Figment? Though I guess they haven't completely shut down yet.
I came from Inklewriter, a very simple and easy-to-use writing site, so now that I'm here I'm a bit lost.
"Oh no, the Inkies have arrived!" The Users screech out in terror as an onslaught of noob Inkies plague the site and forums, clogging the peaceful lives of CYS Users.
That's the best I can think of, to be honest.
Honestly, I like that one better. The Squids (AKA me) have arrived!
And I assure you I won't be doing that, and hopefully nobody else!
Well there, you're just asking for the nickname of Spaz. Not the best name choice. Anyhow, it seems Mizal's cleared up your stuff, but hey, I'm Steve, welcome aboard, Inky. Tell me when Clyde and the other two show up.
Honestly I already go by the nickname spazz and I'm pretty chill with it, I don't mind.
But it's nice to be here! Even if the community is rather small, I'm sure I'll enjoy it here!
I'm guessing you're not British then, hm? :)
True, I'm not British but I know and have always known the actual meaning of it being an insult or rude term or ect. Which is kinda the point. An insult for a nickname.
I've just heard that calling someone a spaz in England is much more serious than doing so in Canada or the USA.
I'm not completely sure what it's considered in England, but here in Canada it's basically calling someone retarded, or on a lesser scale, very weird, commonly for people who physically act weird. An example for dialogue could be; "Look at that person totally spazzing out." Or y'know, like that. Though if it's a bit much I'm not against changing my name on here.
I'm in Canada too. But, I've realized that both Canada and the US are so big, that sometimes you have to boil slang down to state/province. Even though it means the same in Britian, apparently it's just consider that much more tacky to use it.
Honestly just audible shrug. I rarely use 'Spazzler' much anyways and was already considering updating it.
Oh, I'm not criticizing it. I'm just one of those people who has a habit of contributing bits of trivia when I find a relevant opening. Don't mind me.
Naw, it's fine dear!
That sounds rather unpleasant. Though how you knew he was cross-eyed and drooling is a bit perplexing. You must be clairvoyant. Though, if you did have such a talent, I could think of better things to look at. ;)
True! (Also a quick check at the settings I'm 99.9% sure I can't change it so Spazzler's it is!)
And I'm happy I'm one of the 'good' ones!
Pretty sure you tried that again more recently, and got your capitol burned up for it and had to sue for peace so you could go back to butchering the British and have your slaves given back.
Whilst I'm also not British, in the U.K. and Ireland, spastic is pretty bad. it's used commonly enough that it's best not to say it.
I'd hate any conflict over something as simple as a nickname, so anybody can call me whatever they want! They can stick with Spazzler, or spaz, or make up a name for me! Or you can always just stick with Dixon, which is my name.
Can you just call me an asshole right now? Cause I'd like to just preemptively go into that one.
What the fuck are you talking about? You're most definitely a faggot. You get weird and super offended at liberal things at really awkward times, like when you made a whole thread to pretend to be liberals and mock their stereotypes, in something that not only was weird, but didn't even manage to be funny or offensive.
Is that an attempt at making an "I know you are, but what am I?" response but not like a faggot? Didn't go well.
Hmmm. I wonder where I am more likely to fall...I don't think either applies really. My short comings tend to lie elsewhere.
Will do retard, pleasure to have you aboard.
I guess the others have already answered your questions, so I will just welcome you >~<
Aw, thank you!
Welcome Spazzler, and be sure to DM me if you have any questions!
Alright, and thank you!
